Gumby male

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. Itís the perfect name for a gal who loves to lay by the pool and nap in the sun. While retired and living in Florida now, Laniís beginnings were quite different. Through research we have found that she is the result of the breeding of two NRTA foundation stock Rat Terriers. Her bloodline is 71.87% Decker. Her dam is Sycamore Flats Jackie and her sire is Sycamore Flats Tuffy. Lani was born 4/26/03, is 17.5 inches at the withers, and a skinny 25 pounds. She is sweet and gentle. Lani gets along well with her foster siblings but has been unsuccessful at getting them to play with her. She is a finicky eater, and requires a grain free diet to avoid skin irritation. During Lani's first couple of months in foster care she lived with cats and wanted to chase them, but she did not harm them. More photos of Lani are available here.

Donnie male

2016-01-29

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Donnie is a super sweet and active senior who was overlooked by adopters at the shelter. Was it because of his graying face? Was it because he's missing an eye? Why was this sweet, adorable older gent overlooked? But no matter - Donnie is now safe, and a Ratbone Boy. Look forward to updates - this guy is a charmer! For more photos of Donnie please visit his album.

Rusty male

2015-05-25

Location: Idaho

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
This is Rusty. He will turn 8 years old in June (2016). Rusty is a neutered Rat Terrier. He is current on shots. Rusty is a twenty pound Dynamo. He has striking looks, yes, but a remarkable personality too! Rusty is very funny and lively. He has high energy, is an active little guy, and needs mental stimulation and lots of physical activity. Rusty is also a major love bug who not only loves to be held and cuddled, but he frequently asks to be picked up. Of course, like most Rat Terriers, he wants to sleep between the covers and share your bed pillow. Rusty is a clean boy who bathes himself and enjoys tub-baths; we do not know if he likes to swim. He loves to run and needs a chance to dig some holes. Rusty needs land - some property - to be happy. He is a compulsive healer and would make an excellent therapy dog. Rusty would love agility or any other kind of daily training and exercise program; he needs a job or hobby to fulfill his potential. Rusty is vocal and "talks". His vocalizations have given us great delight for nearly 8 years. Rusty is great with people, very friendly, and likes kids too - if they respect him and know how to approach a dog. He did great with the three elderly female dogs that were in his pack, but not so much with adult male dogs. He has been spoiled and he is a dog with a strong, dominant personality. He has been too aggressive with his special needs brother (a very spooky boy) and his elderly brother recently, which has forced his family to find him a new home. Rusty is an excellent housemate; he has never been destructive, and actually still has most of his original toys. He loves to play with toys, do puzzles, find treats, run, be with his people, learn new things and go for walks. Rusty is an extraordinary dog with huge potential. The ideal personal companion! Rusty is NOT good with cats at all, and he needs to be an only dog. If you have space, time and energy to give this boy, he will give you a lifetime of joy and laughter. Rusty is pure delight!

Note: This is a Guardian Assistance Placement (GAP) Program dog, meaning he/she has been fortunate enough to remain in his/her current home while looking for a new home. Veterinary records have been verified, but we must rely on input from the owner for information on behavior and temperament.
